'Black Ink Crew: Compton' Season 2 Full Cast List: KP to Kyla Pratt, meet the VH1 stars
Danny 'KP' Kirkpatrick and his crew aren't only running a company, they're also changing the way the world sees their city
Tattoo visionary Danny 'KP' Kilpatrick led the venture in the previous season, assembling a team of brilliant artists for the city of Compton's first-ever tattoo shop. Seeing the day-to-day activities at the shop as KP learns how to run the shop with his hand-picked squad, drama arises as the artists are under pressure to achieve and realize not just their own but also their leader's and community's goals.
Fortunately for us, we will now be able to see how KP starts the new season with a clear aim in mind. He is determined to seize this opportunity that has been presented to him and build a movement in the city that honors the community's skill, passion, and rich culture via the art of tattooing.
Danny Kilpatrick, popularly known as 'KP,' is a tattoo artist, actor, and rapper. KP emerged from the streets of Compton to become a well-known tattoo artist and rapper, but instead of establishing himself in Hollywood, he came home and established IAM Compton, the city's first tattoo shop. KP is forming a creative collaboration with his crew that will benefit the entire community. He rose to fame as a tattoo artist and has acted in TV shows and films such as 'Mystery ER' and 'Morbid: A Love Story'.
Vudu Dahl is a rising star in the tattoo world. In 'Black Ink: Compton,' she is attempting to establish herself as an artist. Vudu was raised in a religious cult outside Seattle, where she was shielded from the outside world until she left to pursue her dreams of being a tattoo artist and model. She is obsessed with work that showcases the female body, sexuality, and Asian culture. However, she still struggles with trauma from her background and misses her siblings.
It's no surprise that Ink Drippin is such a ladies' man. He's a free-spirited playboy with a flair for tattooing. Ink had a difficult childhood. Because his parents divorced, Ink had to help raise his younger siblings after his Mexican mother was shunned for being with his Black father. He now feels free and passionate about pursuing his work.
Tattooist, lyricist, and muralist, Nessie is brilliant. She frequently creates work that is influenced by hip-hop and hip-hop musicians. Nessie is enthusiastic and strategic about her profession as an artist, having previously pursued a career as a doctor. She is an ardent feminist who works hard to show that she is as good as, if not better than, the men.
Tim Simmons works as the shop manager at IAM Compton and is KP's cousin. Tim went on to earn a degree and build a promising career on the gridiron, but after hanging up his jersey, Tim came home to help create IAM Compton, where his ties to local gangs helped KP negotiate the convoluted web of underworld politics.
Barbie, the shop receptionist, is a long-time friend of KP's who adds a dash of elegance, class, and sass to the IAM team. Barbie contributes everything she has to the store without breaking a sweat. Barbie's gruff, no-nonsense appearance hides a compassionate heart since she was raised by her grandparents and father after being abandoned by her mother.
LeMeir, a native of Philadelphia who grew up in a gang-infested neighbourhood and whose father was imprisoned for murder, used his art and business acumen to flee with his high-school girlfriend, Danielle. They created a profitable food truck together, which helped LeMeir enhance his tattoo skills.
Kyla Pratt is a musician and actor. She voiced Penny Proud in Disney Channel's first animated series 'The Proud Family', as well as Breanna Latrice Barnes in UPN's 'One on One'. Kyla is a key partner at IAM Compton and is more than merely KP's girlfriend.
On February 21, at 9.00 pm EST, the second season of 'Black Ink Crew Compton' will premiere on VH1.
